Wright was detected with Cancer in October 2017. After complaining of severe headache and extreme body fatigue, making him barely able to walk.
His medical reports indicated acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The type of leukaemia is one of the most common kind of blood cancer found. It is found in the blood and bone-marrow of a person, affecting the white blood cells.
In the past two years, he underwent a ton of rounds of chemotherapy. We can feel the extreme pain, he went through during his chemo sessions. Two days before his death, Wright coughed up blood while eating. His wife took him to hospital in a very critical condition.
